From the artist of Prison Architect and the studio that brought you Political Animals comes Academia : School Simulator, a simulation game that lets you design, construct, and manage the high school of your dreams! Watch your students as they get bullied, find love, flunk exams, and basically just try to get through the roller-coaster ride that is high school. Will you offer the best teachers and facilities or cheap out and build giant classrooms with a 1:100 student to teacher ratio? It's all up to you!

Complex Students : Student motivation is driven by various needs, including hygiene, hunger, and discipline, and they'll become even more complex as time goes on.

Varied Faculty : Teachers are complex as well, with different skillsets, teaching styles and motivations.

Numerous Facilities : Build Canteens, Clinics, Computer Labs and much , much more.

Micromanage your finances : Do the teachers get instant or brewed coffee? Do the kids eat healthy diets or cheap microwave lunches?

Customize Your School : Customize your school seal and motto to make a school that is uniquely yours!

Two modes : Normal mode requires you to balance your budget and provide the best education that you can with your money, while sandbox lets you go utopian with unlimited money!

Academia: School Simulator reviews and comments

Early Access Review Game was quite interesting, but you can't unlock or achieve anything here, just screw the Number higher. An Hour and you have seen everything and tried it all! Nor given any Competitive Factor or Economic Factor! Still nice to look at, but only very short Pastime. In the Future if there is more, I will play it again as well, so far it is unusable for me

Early Access Review Hi, first, I would like to say, that I love this game. It's very easy to play, but there are a few things that I don't like. The map is to small, after a few hours playing this game, I didn't have any space to build new rooms. So please create a bigger map =). The next negative point is, that the students are very fast ill. I don't know how to solve this problem. Please change this few things and I will love this game much more!

Early Access Review Beautiful Wuselspiel! Very Expandable Early Acces. Of Course, the Game is still in the Construction Phase but is still Fun;D Tutorial missing, which isn't bad as it's very self-explanatory; D I would be very happy to see a "adjustable Timetable"! Unfortunately, there is still a lack of good ballancing between garbage/dirt and student/caretaker. I have about 90 Students and about 25 Caretakers ... The School is still very dirty and the Students get Sick:( I am very much looking forward to updates on this.

Early Access Review Nice Game with a lot of Potential, which still needs to be exhausted. The basic Game Mechanics are very much based on Prison Archtect. I Am happy when Things like the research ree or better Management of the class schedule are built in. I also thought it nice Thing that the Game is cheaper if you already own Political Animals. Otherwise, there's a little 3-Episode Lets Play Here, where you can see quite well what's already in the Game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vuHTWj7Dsk Greetings Funghi

Early Access Review Academia: School Simulator is a Management Game that allows You to design, build and manage the University of Your Dreams! Super interesting Game. To like the Game, you should be a Fan of Indie Games. Otherwise, it's hard to do, like some others here with the negative Reviews. You have a large Area to build a Campus or a University. Consisting Of Classrooms, Lounges, Toilets, Canteen, etc. If you continue to expand the Campus, you can accept more Students and get Money. Students are the only Source Of money. If the Money Goes empty, you have a small Chance and get a Loan. If you go back down, the Game is over. In addition to the Set-up, the Distribution of Employees is also important, creating the Timetable, etc. At the End of the Year, the Notes and the Reputation are evaluated together and the University gets a Total Grade. As I said, you have to like Games like that. :)
